Y’know, I’ve come to the conclusion that I’m a fucking sucker. Back at E3, when I first saw FFX/X-2 in action, I had absolutely no desire to purchase the game and re-experience it. I mean, why would I? I had a wonderful time with it several years ago, and although I consider it one of my favorite Final Fantasy games, I have enough on my gaming plate to keep me entertained for the remainder of, like, forever.
But when countless emails come in from Square Enix that constantly remind you of how awesome and pretty these HD renditions are going to be it’s hard to ignore. Crap! It feels like every day they wag their precious Final Fantasy HD awesomeness all up in my grill via e-mail, so I throw in the towel. I wave my white flag. With your email about the Collector’s Edition, Square Enix, you officially have my pre-order. I hope your happy.
If you’re like me and are now committed to picking this up, you can expect a 40 page artbook stemming from the world of Spira, five lithographs and a soundtrack packing more than six hours of ear porn. Shit guys, that’s not even an amazing Collector’s Edition. That’s how I know I was seduced.
What’s your stance? Are you going to get it? On a semi-related note, did anyone else have issues pronouncing Tidus’ name? I still fumble over it. Tye-Dus? Tee-dus? Tight-ass?
That HD Blitzball, though.
I’m not a FF fan at all but thanks to you I just pre-ordered this. I officially hate you and am never coming back to your womencave blog of hell. Jk, I love you and I’m sorry. <3
HAHAHAHAHA! I love you more. <3
Never finished FFX, but I want to, so that’s why I’ll buy this :) though I never did play Blitzball lol. The soundtrack sounds interesting though…it doesn’t sound like an actual soundtrack, I know it’s 6 hours long, but it’s set to videos of artwork and character artwork and stuff like that…a 6 hour blu-ray…not sure how I feel about that? What do you think?
I actually think that’s pretty cool! I mean, I think the music itself is probably readily accessible anywhere. That being said, I don’t know when I’ll be able to sit down for six hours. ;)
Lol that’s my problem too :) like, I’m listening to the soundtrack right now at work on Youtube, and it’s really good, but I don’t know if I would have time to sit down for 6 hours straight to watch it you know? Do you like this Final Fantasy more then Final Fantasy 7?
I usually forgo the HD collections as, to be honest, I think they are just mikling the cash cow but damn that video gave me the nostalgic-feels…this collection is now sitting in my Amazon shopping cart waiting on my new paycheck. Damn you! :P
